iOS 15: How to Adjust the Date and Time of Photos

In iOS 15, the Photos app has been given a significant update that includes a richer Info pane to view information about a photo in your library, such as the camera, lens, and shutter speed used, the file size of the image, and where the image came from if it was saved from within another app. In another notable addition, you can also edit the date and time when a photo was taken.

What a pleasure it is to eat a well prepared meal. I don’t make many of them anymore but I love to go out and enjoy food cooked by others. In this case it was at a very nice restaurant in the country. We saw a man who was so happy to be there after the confinement that he got down on his knees and bowed to the ground. It started with really good ham and melon. My friend had this very good platter of chacuterie. Some delicious pork with potatoes cooked in goose fat. Fabulous. ...

A Delight

They have partially lifted the confinement in France (I wrote this over a month ago) and like most of the rest of the population, I couldn’t wait to get out and have a meal on a terrace, the thing that makes Paris as charming as it is. Some terraces were overwhelmed with people and not keeping the numbers of tables in half but my terrace was perfect. Starting with wine. I asked the waiter if he was happy to be back at work and he said: very, very, very happy. My starter was fried moz...

10 Pointers to Help You Improve Your Photos by Utilizing Photography Backdrops

Finding the ideal photography backdrop is one of the most challenging tasks any photographer faces. Photography backdrops, technically speaking, could be utilized to enhance the appearance of a photograph. The background of a photograph can be just as, if not more, important than the subject itself. When an image’s background complements its subject, magic occurs. Placement, angle, subject, lighting, and depth all contribute to creating an appealing image when combined with the backgrou...

iOS 15 Photos App Tells You Which Apps Saved Images Originated From

In iOS 15, Apple has made some welcome improvements to the Photos app, such as the ability to see the EXIF data for a photo. The latter feature is accessed via a new "Info" button, which also brings up a caption field for the selected photo, the location where the photo was taken, and any Look Up information available. In addition to the above, the Info button will also tell you which app on your device that an image was saved from if you didn't take it using your camera. For instance, in the...

A Visit

I made a quick trip down into the South of France to visit a friend. There are always new and interesting places to visit in France. We made a visit to Rennes le Chateau which has some mystical stories about it along with those of the priest who worked there called Father Bérenger Saunière. He is said to have been involved in finding papers about Jesus and his marriage to Mary Magdalene, a la The Da Vinci Code but it has lately been shown that he was basically involved in a bit of fraud, ta...

More Garden

More photos from a beautiful day inthe Tuleries Garden. A sculpture celebrating the author of Puss in Boots, Charles Perrault. I think this is the only cedar tree in the garden. The iris was just starting to bloom. The morning sun tipped the iris in silver. Great color but the tulips were finished.

Old Friends

The day the Louvre Museum was due to open I got online and got a ticket to wander around again. It was so great to be there once more. They limit the number of people who can enter so it wasn’t very crowded. The lobby. Mercury. A fovorite room. pretty statue. Winged Victory still in the same place. Ah, Mona! I rather like this one too. A few paintings that I like are moved or on loan I guess.

The Seine

I love it when the Seine is smooth. The trees are now green. This blue is so striking. Pont Neuf. Saint Michel Fountain. Another nice view.

Paris Photos

A mix of photos, as usual. A favorite door on the street where I once lived. Further up on the building. The making of pain au chocolate. I guess this was a problem before confinement-people coming out of restaurants to smoke and talk loudly. I hope it will be a problem again soon-in a way. As long as I don’t live right above them. A colorful mural. A last shot of wisteria. I’ll be looking for roses next. I wrote up this post a month ago so, as far as...
